Those two things don't really seem to mix when you look at real life. If left me toying with removing the geek girl parts of Savannah. Maybe I only did it because I'm enthusiastic about that stuff so I can't help but make her that way. In the end, I left Savannah as is because the thought of her being both a geek girl and a popular cheerleader was an interesting character trait that fit her.
Savannah, I hope, comes off as a strong character. She does what she likes and loves what she loves. No alien abduction can change that about her. If anything, it might have made her a little more aggressive about defending her passions.
Of course, it wasn't always like that. Before her life got turned upside down, I saw her as a closet geek girl. In high school, she kept her fan girling to herself. Only one person knew her secret and she trusted him enough to keep it safe. Then she thought she lost him. At the same time she also fell from grace in the popular circles. It left her with only her fandoms for solace, so by the time the story happens, she's no longer cares about popularity or what people think of her geekiness.
Savannah Janowitz had everything: Popularity. Caring parents. A boy she had loved with all her heart. It was destroyed the night she went missing. When she reappears a year later with no memory and with strange, new abilities, she struggles to fit back into her old life.
Evan Sullivan never believed aliens existed until he and Savannah were abducted. Experimented and mutated by them, he is forced to hide in the shadows and watch Savannah rebuild her life without him. But no matter how hard he tries, he can't stay away from her.
Reunited with Evan, Savannah sees a glimmer of her old life finally return. As they face what was done to them together, they discover aliens aren't the only danger to them. Someone closer to home is watching, waiting for the order to take out the 'alien threat'.
Abducted Life is a sci-fi romance about true love over coming all the odds.
